It’s a sad day for Star Wars fans.  Not only is this the one year anniversary of Carrie Fisher’s death, but another cast member from “A New Hope” has passed away.

Alfie Curtis, who brought the character of  Dr. Cornelius Evazan in “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope,” to life has passed away at the age of 87. The cause of his death has yet to be announced.

Mark Hamill took to his Twitter today to pay his respects.

Curtis’ character is best remembered for his interaction with Luke Skywalker in the Mos Eisley cantina.  He told Skywalker, “You just watch yourself. We’re wanted men. I have the death sentence on 12 systems.”

Curtis is also known for his role as the Milkman in “The Elephant Man.” He was born in London in 1930.
